What I Am Into – September 2018

Subscription Boxes:

  • Singles Swag (3/5) –  I finally got my box. I am not sure I would become a monthly subscriber. I feel the products are very low quality for the price. However, I did love one product. I will review it below.
  1. Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm. I will definitely order that specific product again in the future. It makes your face feel very refreshed.

  • FabFitFun (5/5) – I LOVED this box. I was so shocked when I saw how HUGE the box was on my door step. There were several FULL SIZED products that I adored and will use. I will list my favorite products from the box below.
  1. Skin & Co Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel -The scent is an herbal and pine blend. This smell was very distinct and strong but I liked it.

2. Vince Camuto Luck Tote – I ordered Fab Fit Fun box just so I would get this tote. I adore leather, fall, and the colors brown plus black together so this was a must purchase item for me.

3. ALFRED Ceramic and Stainless Steel Teapot – I am a wannabe tea drinker. I like the idea of having a glass of hot tea but I rarely ever do. I need to start. This teapot is also super cute.

 

4. Catherine Malandrino Umbrella – This umbrella is super sturdy, trendy, and cute. It is a must have and I am so glad it came inside my box.

Fashion:

  • MICHAEL Michael Kors Jett Slide – I had bought one pair of MK sandals and they are now worn out. I bought these recently and they are SUPER cute and comfy. 

What I am Loving:

  • Bible Study Quiz Book – This quiz will lead you in the direction of a Bible Study that will personally benefit you.

Read:

  • The Eternal Current: How a Practice-Based Faith Can Save Us from Drowning by Aaron Niequist (2/5) – This was a very confusing book. I  didn’t grasp the concept at at all.

Free Gifts:

  • Rosé Exfoliating Sugar Cubes by Francesca’s – I got an email from Francesca’s to come pick out a free gift. The first thing I saw and smelled was the Rosé Exfoliating Sugar Cubes and I fell in love. It makes my skin feel super soft. The only down side it kinda makes my skin itchy. But you can’t really regret a FREE gift.

Fat and Faithful by Nicole Morgan Review

 

My Review – 5 Stars

This book is about a girl who is overweight and believes that she can love and serve the Lord being overweight. She wants to prove to the church that you don’t have to shame fat people. She gave me a different perspective on certain Bible verses. Although unlike the author I think eating healthy and exercising is an important way to take care of your body. At the same time when we call ourselves ugly and beat ourselves up that is not a healthy concept. She is truly teaching me to love and accept myself. I just respect this author so much and want to be her BFF.

The Phrase Let Go, Let God Drowned My Soul

I was in either High School or College when I heard the phrase Let Go, Let God. It stung my heart to hear that since I couldn’t let go of my depression, anxiety, or problems that meant I didn’t trust God enough. Over the years I have learned to accept that I can still trust God THROUGH my depression, anxiety, and problems. Those things do not need to be absent in order to still have faith. I quote this next verse I am going to put on here often.  2 Timothy 2:13 says, “If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” Even if we are faithless God is still faithful because He is a faithful God. He also is a God of understanding. Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin.”
